Why not get a real extracycle bike with a better geometry. Folding bikes are fine for shoving in the back of a car or for some commuting but I wouldn't want to use that tiny little frame and wheels to transport large cargo or tour. I know people use them a lot and I see the uses but if you are touring get a full size bike and be comfortable and more easily carry the load and have better gearing.

The only folding bike I would want to actually ride a bunch would be one of those Montague folders as they are full size bikes that can fold.
